January has gone OK. I think my weight is down to about 162 or so--down from where I started. It's a little hard to tell because I had a weigh-in today, so of course I carbed up to get as heavy as possible. At the end of the day, it was sort of a wasted effort because I could have just told the girl what I weighed. And since I weighed in wearing shoes, I could have worn combat boots or carrying rolls of quarters in my pockets. Whatever!!!

I had my knee scoped on Thursday and already it...

Catching up

I have not written a single word in here for awhile--it seems to me like I ought to have something to say. I had my knee scoped yesterday--it's not particularly painful but it is a little sore. The ice helps a lot, I must say. It was kinda neat having it done under a local with just a little Fentanyl--it certainly didn't hurt, but it was weird to feel the whole thing without any pain.

I saw Sharma yesterday for my quarterly review. He's an odd duck--I suspect he thinks he's a most impor...

Did my pushups first thing this morning. A few more weeks and this is apt to become a full-day activity!

Today I need to call Dr. G about a handicapped permit for the Friday after surgery--walking to/from St. Lukes is apt to be a real trial w/o it. And parking at St. Lukes would be worse--I just as well walk! I also need to move my hair appointment on Thursday--I don't think I'm going to feel like getting my hair done that day.

I just finished breakfast and it was mighty tasty! But...

Another week down the drain. But it's payday, so hooray!

In about 30 minutes I head off to the surgeon for a pre-op exam so I can get my knee worked on. Good. I am tired of messing around with this thing. Sometimes it doesn't hurt at all and I start thinking it's all better--sort of like curing a toothache by making an appointment with the dentist. But then I step wrong or sit in the car or something and it feels like someone kicked a bruise!

Yesterday was interesting. I saw Dr...

Today is better. Nothing like getting the old hormone balance balanced to make my brain work right. There still isn't much to do here, but it's not making as crazy as I was yesterday.:thumbu2:

I got my 40 extra pushups done today. :clap: If I do another 40 tomorrow and 40 the day after that and 40 the day after that..... Well, you get the picture. Anyway, that will put some serious numbers in the bank before surgery in February. I don't think my knee surgery next week is going to interfere with p...
